Wenger: Taylor Shouldn't Play Again

Wenger: Taylor Shouldn't Play Again

As the footballing world reels in the aftermath of the horrific injury to Arsenal's Eduardo, Arsenal Gaffer has called for the offending player to be banned from football.

In what initially looked like a nothing challenge, Arsenal's striker suffered a potentially career threatening injury. Upon reflection (and seeing some extremely grim photographic evidence) Taylor's challenge was as a disgusting a tackle as I have ever seen.

Indeed, Arsene Wenger is rightfully furious.

'I think this guy should never play football again. What's he doing on the pitch?' fumed Wenger.

'I've gone along with the idea for a long time that to stop Arsenal, you have to kick Arsenal. I knew that was coming for a long time now.

'The season is over for him and it's very, very bad. More than the season is over.'

Good old Arsene... If it was his player who fouled, he'd be moaning about how unfair the red card was, that's for sure. Best wishes to Eduardo though, darn shame the season's over for him. :(

Injuries are obviously an occupational hazzard, but tackles like that are very hard to stomach!

RussianHammer - "If it was his player who was fouled"????? Are you having a laugh? There is a player in hospital with a potential career threatening break, you come up with this crap. Shows your true class.

rooneyisgod - go and look at the link to a picture on the article below this one and tell me it wasn't intentional.

it may be unitentional but it was unwarranted.. there was no need for him to fly in on eduardo who was at least 30 feet away from the goal with stud showing tackle and plant it right in the middle of eduardo's leg.. pray the lad gets the opportunity to don the colours of arsenal next season

Taylor out for life, that is the worst foul I have ever seen. And how we can allow complete idiots and c..ts such as the two above Rh and ris god on our site is beyond me. Why do you allow them to comment Rocky? Edourdo will never play again, mark my words.

Typical Wenger. Of course it was a reckless tackle, of course taylor should've been sent off, but don't exaggerate. Eduardo was very very unlucky, that's it.
